After five days of overcast skies, Herman was delighted to wake up and see the sunrise glowing outside. He wandered over to the glass in his home to get a better look while he basked under his heat lamp. In her delight at the return of the sun, the guardian disregarded his discomfort and brought him to the windows of the world outside his home.
“Look Herman, ” she said, “isn’t it pretty?”
Herman took a moment to agree that it was, indeed, pretty and then proceeded to remind his guardian about his preference for all four legs on solid ground.
Herman was returned to his basking spot where he spent the next hour trying to decide whether or not his dignity had been bruised. In the end he decided that it didn’t matter. Strange though she may be, he was starting to enjoy the quirks of his new guardian.
